Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2005 Chevrolet Malibu Owner Comments

problem #1

Malibu 6-cyl

  • miles


Started 2013, traction control remains on for a 10 mins of driving then turns off, and back on again once restart of car. When traction control light is on unable to turn off by pressing the button. Car drives like the rear breaks are engaged. This started in 2010 and still happens to the present day the car has times where it doesn't start up, it turns over but doesn't catch. I have had a fuel ejection service, and regular oil changes at a Chevrolet dealership. This started 2013, engine light is on and it won't go off. Car is at 115,000 miles. This started 2012, the changing of gears is very rough, hard changes. This started in 2010, my last change was 2012, my head light turn signal continue to blow out and burst. In 2011 my mirror visor on the driver sides has broken again after getting it replace with the recall.
